The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced the 56th New York Film Festival Projections line-up which runs from October 4 through October 7.The program will screen seven feature films: Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt's Diamantino; Albert Serra's Roi Soleil; Jodie Mack's The Grand Bizarre; James Benning's 11 x 14; Ted Fendt's Classical Period; Tsai Ming-liang's Your Face, and Dora García's Second Time Around (Segunda Vez).

There will also be five programs of shorts, an Ericka Beckman Program and a Quantification Trilogy by Jeremy Shaw.

Projections is curated by Dennis Lim (FSLC Director of Programming) and Aily Nash (independent curator). Shelby Shaw and Dan Sullivan are Program Assistants.

“This year’s Projections lineup brings together established artists, both from the cinema and from the gallery, and emerging talents working in fields that range from narrative fiction to ethnographic documentary,” said Dennis Lim, FSLC Director of Programming and one of the curators of Projections. “We’re especially excited about the sheer variety of this selection, which speaks to the credo of Projections: radicalism and innovation come in many guises, and the most vital contemporary artists continue to find a wide array of new possibilities for the moving image.”

Tickets for the 56th New York Film Festival will go on sale to the general public on September 9.

The 2018 New York Film Festival runs from September 28 through October 14.
